A Roadmap to an Efficient, Simple, Author-Friendly

Royalty management can be overwhelmingly complex leading to both risks and inefficiencies for the business, and stress and pressure to those doing the work. Fortunately, the process can be automated for greater efficiency. In this webinar, PubWest Affiliate Member MetaComet Systems will show you how you can use their tools to:

  • Reduce your effort by up to 90%
  • Improve accuracy and reduce the risk of errors
  • Enhance author relations through online contracts and royalty statements
  • Improve your subright operations and income

MetaComet offers a special discount on its tools for PubWest members.  As a special incentive for PubWest members, all attendees of the webinar will receive their first month of Royalty Tracker free of charge.
